Today I am sharing our fun DIY Christmas Wreath Using Clothespins + Washi Tape.  Clothespin Christmas crafts are perfect for both kids and adults.  Washi tape is easy to work with, decorative and sticks nicely to clothespins. There are several washi tape ideas on google and you can use any color scheme you want to coordinate with your existing holiday decor.

What is Washi tape?

Washi tape is similar to regular tape but you can buy it in several fun decorative colors and patterns. Amazon has the best Christmas Washi Tape Set featuring Santa Xmas Tree, Snowman, Bats, Ghosts, Pumpkin, Autumn Leaves and Halloween and Thanksgiving Patterned tape here.

Washi tape also removes easier from walls, not leaving marks or pulling of paint. The name washi, comes from the original Japanese masking tape hence the name, washi tape.  I used the Scotch expressions washi tape but there are several brands who also make similar tape. 

This package from Amazon would be perfect for a Halloween clothespin wreath, a Fall clothespin wreath or any themed Christmas clothespin wreath.

I used 3 different holiday Scotch® Expressions tapes. Green, green dots and red stripes. I alternated them to created an eclectic look.

3. Next step, you will need to trim the edges of the tape unless your find larger clothes pins. Smaller fine cutting scissors work the best.

You could also pre-cut your tape and add to the clothes pins first, then clip once taped. Either way will work.

4. Hang your homemade Christmas wreath on a mirror, wall or front door. I used a 3M™ Command™ Hanging Strip to hang the wreath on our mirror.

To enhance the wreath, I glued 2 different colored ornaments around the wreath making this a super cute wreath for the holiday season.
